Summary

Using a social-psychological approach, this edition remains solidly grounded in theory and research but places greater emphasis on the individual and copying with death and dying. These two well-known authors and researchers integrate stimulating personal accounts throughout the text, and apply concepts to specific examples that deal with cross-cultural perspectives and the practical matters of death and dying.
